Kourtney Kardashian’s relationship with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker was officially revealed in January 2021. On April 3rd, 2022, they had an unofficial wedding in Las Vegas. Kourtney recently responded to rumors that she is pregnant during an episode of The Kardashians on April 21st by claiming that she was going through menopause as a result of IVF.
Kourtney expressed her dissatisfaction with people’s comments about her figure, including the suspicion that she’s pregnant, on the April 21st episode of The Kardashians. Kourtney revealed that she and Travis Barker were trying for a baby and had begun IVF treatment to help them achieve their goal. Nonetheless, the Poosh creator described the encounter as “awful,” saying in a confessional, “It hasn’t been the most amazing experience.”
“Every single person on social media is always like, ‘Kourtney’s pregnant,'” she told mom Kris Jenner. “‘Kourtney’s gained so much weight.’ And I’m like, it’s so rude to comment on people when you have no idea what they’re actually going through.”
According to E Online, Kourtney revealed that her treatment resulted in more than just weight gain. Kourtney shared, “The medication that they’ve been giving me, they put me into menopause.” A stunned Kris responded, “Based off of what? A drug?”
Kourtney speculated in a confessional that she’s suffering this side effect because she’s “so clean and careful” about what she puts into her body, and that the IVF is having the “complete opposite reaction and is working as a contraceptive.” It is also important to note that, “IVF does not trigger menopause,” fertility specialist Dr. Jenna Turocy recently told Parade.
Kourtney also disclosed that she was suffering from depression as a result of the medication which astonished Kris, who had previously stated that the mother of three had never been happier. Kourtney admitted to feeling “a little bit off” despite having “everything in the world to be happy about.” Despite this, Kris urged her daughter to persevere, predicting that Kourtney and Travis will have a child “a year from now.”
Kris was able to empathize with her daughter‘s plight, disclosing that she had suffered similar symptoms after miscarrying in 1994. She said, “Everything you just described. The exact same thing happened.”
Hulu releases new episodes of The Kardashians every Thursday. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
